Seminar Concept Note

Over the six decades, the nature of our electoral democracy seems apparently changed. One major change reflected over the years was the party system. Beginning from a Congress dominated ‘One Party Dominant’ system, now it has extended on to an unwieldy multiparty system. In between, party politics in India has seen many ebb and flow.

Now party politics characterises many players. It composes a wide stream of groups such as umbrella system like Indian National Congress to single-issue system like Aam Aadmi Party. In between, the party politics inhabits political parties in which one person pulls all the strings, parties having pre-election agreement with smaller parties on joint candidates, Cadre parties, regional parties, identity parties, and so on.

Dominated by issues such as inner party democracy, gender, professionalism, funds, ideologies, values, leadership quality, campaigning methods, regionalization, caste; now the spectre of party politics in India over the fifteen general elections dissected call for vital scrutiny. On this backdrop, the One-Day National Seminar on Changing Dimensions of party Politics in India seeks to uncover the trends and tendencies found in our party politics and the electoral scenario.
The whole issues briefly pinpointed here cover up in the sub themes pertaining to (1) Political Parties and Elections; (2) New Media and Political Communication; (3) Party System in India; (4) State, Political Party and Market.
